With normal aging, lip volume diminishes in both men and women. This presents a challenge for those wearing lipstick and is often accompanied by more prominent lip lines. They even can appear deflated with more wrinkles giving your face an overall aged appearance.
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure used to increase the size of the lips through surgery or injections. This procedure can be performed on the upper or lower lip, or both at the same time, and may offer temporary or permanent results depending on the type of material used. Most patients desiring larger, fuller lips are able to achieve the desired results with just one simple procedure.
Fuller lips can be achieved through several different cosmetic techniques. Hyaluronic acid fillers most commonly used for lip augmentation are Restylane, Juvederm, or your own fat. Silicone lip implants are a permanent solution but also have drawbacks and Dr. Harrison does not recommend them. The best procedure for you depends on your overall health and desired results, along with several other determining factors. Dr. Harrison will discuss these factors with you to help you decide which treatment option is best for you to achieve the full lips and youthful appearance you desire.
